WWII photos hidden in a trunk for 71 Years

WWII photos hidden in a trunk for 71 years hard to believe but true

Hard to believe they were just recently found in an old foot locker and were able to be developed. Squad of Rufe's at Bougainville . These things were very Nimble even With the pontoons.

The A6M2-N float plane version of the Zero did Extremely well, Suffering only a small loss In its legendary maneuverability. Top Speed was not affected, however, the aircraft's Relatively light armament was a Detriment.

Spitfire "tipping-off" a V1. If you've never heard of this insane tactic ....... 
At First V1's were shot down by Gunfire. With the high risk of  Being blown up, some of the best pilots started tipping the V1's wing, because of damage to
wing tips they later developed a tactic of disrupting the airflow by placing their wing very close to the V1's wing, causing it to Topple. Not every pilot did this. At night this Was not possible, the flame from the V1 blinded the pilot to everything else, though some Mossie pilots flew past closely in front of the V1, again causing it to topple. The Thought of doing this at 450mph, 4,000 feet above the ground, at night, and being blinded gives me the willies.

(December  7, 1941)
Isn't  It amazing how a film could last so long in a camera without disintegrating? Fantastic  Photos taken 69 years ago.

  1. I don't understand, how did such a variety of photos make it into a single trunk? Plus, I have seen some of these before...

  2. While the actual photos are cool and everything, the story of all of them being found on a single roll of film left in a sailor's camera for 70 years has to be the most improbable thing imaginable. I.e., did he also suit up for piloting in both the RAF and Army Air Force, and then also join a Kraut artillery company? (I guess his globetrotting shutterbug career couldn't find the time to stuff in the Russian front for a few snaps of bodies in mounds at Stalingrad.)

    Gimme a break.
